A pioneer in the practice of Medical Esthetics and Aesthetic Rehabilitation, Alison O’Neil has built a successful career in beauty. Yet she says on her website “I have struggled to feel beautiful my whole life.” It took a quiet afternoon spent in a garden with her dying father in 2005 for Alison to redefine the true meaning of beauty as inner strength, perseverance and unconditional love. The seeds of new mission in her life were planted that day in the garden.
In memory of her father and in an effort to honor and serve what Alison refers to as “our national treasures” -the elderly- Alison established the Beauty Becomes You® 501 (c)(3) Charitable Foundation which serves the aesthetic health and hygiene needs of senior adults. Beauty Becomes You takes a holistic approach to providing aesthetic services and products to the elderly in a nurturing environment with licensed professionals.
Directly “touching” them through the provision of personal grooming solutions that maintain and improve appearance, preserve the dignity and self-respect of senior adults, lift self-esteem, and ensure a strong sense of personal pride, the mission of the Beauty Becomes You® Foundation is to prevent Failure to Thrive Syndrome. Becomes You® Foundation is to prevent Failure to Thrive Syndrome. Through the generous contributions of over 500 professional volunteers & students BBY has served more than 5000 senior adults over 15,000 in-kind services since 2006
